Not that anyone cares about my TV watching preferences, but I’m a sucker for certain shows. And the latest is The InBetween from NBC.
It is almost a relaunch of The Ghost Whisperer, from 2005, but with a police procedural wrapped around it. I loved The Ghost Whisperer. Well I loved the first few seasons anyway, but I always felt if could have been a bit darker. The InBetween is darker. The hauntings are darker, the police procedural set in Seattle PD makes the show more about murder/crime than about being honest with your family, which was most of the point of The Ghost Whisperer. It has a bit of the feeling of the show Grimm, which I also liked very much, but without the wry humor of that show.
The main character, Cassie, (played by Harriet Dyer, an Australian actress) can see and talk to ghosts, and occasionally just gets visions/messages from them. Her foster father is a Seattle homicide detective, which probably means that the show is being filmed in Vancouver.
It helps that Paul Blackthorne is playing the foster father, and for once they are letting him use his own accent (British) and not making him use his (slightly forced) American accent. I first ran across him in the TV adaptation of The Dresden Files, but you might know him as Star City Police Detective Quentin Lance from DC comic-show Arrow. He’s quite good, and the other people in the cast are also very good. Especially Justin Cornwell, who plays “the new guy” who has to be introduced to the whole paranormal aspect of policing in Seattle.
Anyway, I’m enjoying it and the 1st 5 episodes are available at NBC at least until July 17th. (I think NBC only gives you 5 freebees, and then they start to roll off the stack in first-in, first-out fashion, or maybe they keep the Pilot on tap for an extra while.) The trailer is below, and this link is in case YT objects to privacy settings in your browser.
